History

#1 Updated by sajolida over 2 years ago

Here are the results (with logs until Apr 26 06:25:27 +0200). I did stats on two things:

  • Clicks: views of /news/version_2.12/ which correspond to people opening the page of our release notes.
  • Views: views of /news/version_2.12/sound-recorder.png which correspond to people viewing our release notes, including people viewing it from /news and most of all from /home. Note that we don't have a process to guarantee how long the release notes remain on top of the news feed. For example the announcement of 3.0~beta4 took over the top of the news feed 4 hours after the announcement of 2.12. So very few people actually saw it on their /home unless the scrolled 4 screens down.

The summary is:

  • Clicks: 2171
  • Views: 199432

My first impression seeing these numbers is that the number of clicks only are quite low and that our proposal to sponsor would get much more value if we ensured more visibility to our release notes on /home. This would also make sense to users.

Full results by user agent in attachment.

And the command lines I used to extract these:

zgrep "GET /news/version_2.12/ .* 200 [0-9]\+" access.log-2017-04-1*.gz access.log-2017-04-2*.gz
zgrep "GET /news/version_2.12/sound-recorder.png .* 200 [0-9]\+" access.log-2017-04-1*.gz access.log-2017-04-2*.gz
